Buffalo Pumps Inc.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Buffalo Pumps Inc. is a centrifugal pump manufacturer established in 1887. Based in North Tonawanda, New York, they have a long history equipping ships ever since WW1. Although they didn’t start by manufacturing their products with asbestos, as it was becoming a vital component in many products from the WW2 period up until the 80s, they too have integrated it in their manufacturing process, thus putting their workers at serious health risks.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos During Their Time at Buffalo Pumps Inc. Need to Pay Close Attention to Their Health

Asbestos was a very common component in various products throughout the 50s, 60s, and 70s as it was a very cheap alternative that could offer vital qualities such as heat resistance, durability and fireproofing. Apart from using it as a component, many factories had equipment containing asbestos which would spread microscopic fibers into the air, anytime they were used or serviced. These fibers are extremely toxic, and if inhaled or ingested over a longer period of time can lead to serious diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis.

These diseases take a long time to start showing signs and can develop even after the exposure has stopped. If you are a former Buffalo Pumps employee and have been exposed to asbestos, you need to check on your health regularly. In order to promote early diagnosis, we offer free screenings based on your latest chest X-ray. Our team of specialists will examine it and determine if there are any abnormalities you need to worry about. Contact us for any further information you might need.

Victims of Asbestos Exposure at Buffalo Pumps Inc. Can Get Compensated

There is no safe level of asbestos exposure. Working in a contaminated environment can have hazardous effects on human health. Manufacturers knew as early as 1920 about its carcinogenic effect but continued to use it, endangering the health of their employees. Amongst the workers with the highest risk, there are not only factory workers but also boiler room workers, maintenance workers, and electricians because asbestos was very often used as insulation on machinery, pipes, and wires.

If you are a former Buffalo Pumps employee diagnosed with asbestos-related lung disease, you have the right to get compensated. Our team has handled thousands of asbestos-related cases over more than 25 years of activity. We can help you file a claim and receive proper compensation. Contact us and we will gladly answer any question you might have regarding this process.
